Middelkerke on the West Coast is a fairly exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. The best wind direction is from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around high tide. Rarely crowded here. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
